Why have the UN?

U.S. Strike In Syria Could Unleash More Turmoil, UN Chief Ban Ki Moon Says:

UNITED NATIONS — U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday warned that any “punitive” action taken against Syria for an alleged chemical weapons attack last month would be illegal without Security Council approval or a sound case for self-defense.

What is the purpose of the United Nations if the members do not abide by its rulings or decisions? Personally I think the whole organization is a joke. There has been little to no unity in it since it was founded.

The only positive thing I have heard about the USA getting into another war that we do not belong in is; there are supposed to be some stipulations agreed on that there will absolutely not be “any boots on the ground.” This remains to be seen.

Just a little information on how much it cost to run the UN a year. Take a good look at who is the major contributor.

The top 10 providers of assessed contributions to United Nations Peacekeeping operations in 2013:

1. United States (28.38%)
2. Japan (10.83%)

5. United Kingdom (6.68%)
6. China (6.64%)
